New Zealand Baseball Team preforms Haka Dance for WBC

The New Zealand rugby squad is best known for preforming the traditional ancestral war cry, dance or challenge from the Māori people. Not quite sure having the less intimidating baseball squad, who has never made a baseball classic, preform the dance has the same effect, but the Chinese Taipei seemed to respect it. Unfortunately NZ lost 10-0 after the game was called in the 7th.
